How do I cover my car to protect it from the snow?

How can I protect my car from snow? I live in Maine and my car is constantly covered with snow in the winter.

“The easiest way to protect your car from the snow is to park under a covered area. If this isn’t possible, you can purchase a windshield cover.
Other strategies to minimize the impact of snow on your car include:
  • Standing your windshield wipers upright and putting a sock on the blades to keep them from freezing
  • Applying an ice prevention spray like Ice Free to your windows to make cleaning snow and ice off much easier
  • Spraying cooking oil on the car’s rubber seals and door jams so they will be less likely to freeze shut
You’re right to worry about your car in the winter. Extreme weather can be damaging—and dangerous. Icy roads cause more than 150,000 crashes a year, according to the Federal Highway Administration. So you may want to consider adding comprehensive coverage to your car insurance policy if you don’t already have it.
